about

Courtney's Moving To Newtown (To Start A Band) is the debut single from Sydney based songwriter Danny Yau. "Yau" rhymes with "cow" if you have trouble pronouncing it.

lyrics

Courtney’s moving to Newtown to start a band
Top floor room in a share house with friends of friends
She’ll play guitars in all the bars
Courtney’s moving to Newtown to start a band

Paige is moving to Glebe for a change of scene
She’s outgrown the friends she had in her teens
The suburbs are so very far
Paige is moving to Glebe for a change of scene

And yes there will be boys
In pretty band t-shirts
Who make a pretty noise
Who’ll get them pretty hurt
Still Courtney’s moving to Newtown to start a band

Emma’s moving to Enmore cos Courtney’s there
She’s practising drums and she’s cut her hair
They need a bass so they call Paige
Emma’s moving to Enmore cos Courtney’s there

And yes there will be boys
Who’re bound to break their hearts
But what’s the other choice?
Just living in the suburbs married to some guy
And paying off a house until the day you die
And you turn into your mother as the world goes by
And having all these dreams and never even trying

Courtney’s moving to Newtown to start a band
She’s got two months deposit and she’s booked the van
The suburbs are so very far
Courtney’s moving to Newtown to start a band
